Juan Gil Blue Label 2015

Jumilla, Valencia and Murcia, SpainThe Juan Gil ‘Blue Label’ is a 60/30/10 mix of monastrell, cabernet-sauvignon and syrah that spends 18 months in French and American oak barrels. The monastrell vines are very old and grown at 700 meters altitude. The colour is opaque, the nose a mix of toasted oak (too much really) with earthy, lead pencil, spicy black fruits and chocolate flavours. The finish is long and smooth with balsamic notes. New World Spain. This will need time to settle into itself. If you must open it now, think grilled beef, duck, pork or meaty/mushroom pasta dishes.Tasted: 08 January 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 48.99 Everything Wine NS 48.99 Bishop's Cellar Producer: Juan Gil Bodegas FamiliaresDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
